    Tom, take a look at www.hoeggergoatsupply.com
    maybe too small for 3 cows???
    no first hand experience, maybe ask on the goat forum too
    have a great day

    I prefer to use a straw - the big ones at Mcdonalds works best..yummmmm..


    Just kidding.... have you looked on ebay?? You can usually find such equipment there.

    Ya, dem dere straws work great but contamination of the cream gets alot of funny looks here!!! I'm familar with most of the separators advertized(like Hoeggers) but was looking for some people who have used and would recommend buying... The one other answer I got on the cattle forum warned that buying used might bring a whole bunch of problems... I agree, missing parts, not properly assembled, no manual, etc.. Thanks, Tom
